Are you talking about the casparcg.config file or the app’s settings? If its the app settings only, there’s not much to work with… Just both paths, language, buffer size, startup setting and the window position. It’s a xml file located at the user’s AppData folder:
C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\CasparLauncher\CasparLauncher.exe_...\user.config. You just delete that file/folder and it reverts to defaults.
If you meant caspar.config, the easiest way is to create a basic xml with no data:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
and then edit the file and save the config. The config editor starts up with all the defaults set (according to the comments in the original config file) There’s a bug where it hangs if the first configuration node is not present, I will fix that soon and maybe add a button to create a new file with defaults.
The initial idea was to create multiple files and manage them inside the app but didn’t do that for the moment because of time constraints. Definitely is a feature I will add eventually.
First, you wouldn’t want to have a GUI attached to another GUI as it is created as a child process of the main process but it’s possible. You can actually replace the Scanner path with any executable you want (tested it with notepad and it works properly ). Again, the initial idea was to add every tab as an editable item but ended up hardcoding it because of the hurry. The GUI is already prepared to do all of that (notice the extra space in the Status tab among other things). It’s not hard to implement… just need some free time, which I didn’t have lately.
Así es, the whole app idea is to have a friendly interface for the server in environments where operators are regular people just picking between a bunch thumbnails and writing some text in a box. So a “hackery” console window scrolling nonsense in front of them is actually scary and worrying:
It reads: “Mauro look… Is that you?”
So to wrap up, here in Argentina, most of the people doesn’t understand a word of English and that is scary too so NRK launcher wouldn’t cut it and I ended up building one from scratch, en Español. The actual claim should be that it is in localized in English also. Now that I did to be able to share it with the community and to help a little further I’m happy to accept any other languages if you want to translate it, just ask for it.
Wow, long post. Sorry.
